Bradley Walsh and his son Barney have proved they’re an unstoppable force after being commissioned for a sixth series of their father-and-son travel show.
ITV’s Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad sees the well-travelled Barney drag his unenthusiastic father to far flung destinations as they undertake a series of road trips.
While Barney, 25, has been to a number of tourist spots in everywhere from Indonesia to San Francisco and Moscow, comedian Bradley, 63, prefers to stay at home.
However, the family members are set to jet off to the other side of the world together once again with television cameras in tow as they take a look at what Asia has to offer.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s been a busy year for Bradley and Barney.

‘As well as working together on the reboot of Gladiators for the BBC, Barney has been living away from home while filming for Casualty, and Bradley is non-stop with The Chase.
‘So they’re thrilled to be back together for a sixth series of Breaking Dad, where they genuinely have as much fun as it looks on screen.
‘Going on another epic adventure gives them the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time together.
‘They have already ticked off a number of dream destinations, but there’s plenty to get stuck into in Japan —and it’s likely to be the wildest series yet.’
A series has aired every January since 2019 but due to their current work schedule, a new season is not expected to air next year.
As the king of entertainment television, Bradley has amassed a fortune of £18.6million.
But his son Barney may be catching up after landing a number of lucrative gigs – and, like his dad, featuring in a bidding war between the BBC and ITV.
Sources recently said that Walsh Junior was ‘inundated’ with offers after catapulting to fame next to his father on Breaking Dad.

Later this year, the Walshes will reunite to host the reboot of the popular 90s show Gladiators, which will air on the BBC on Saturday nights – a potential ‘shop window’ for the Barney to secure even bigger shows than his father.
Barney, whose mother is choreographer Donna Derby, also stars as the hapless trainee nurse Cameron Mickelthwaite on the BBC drama Casualty. He was a contestant on Catchphrase and played Ryan Cook in an episode of BBC hit Death In Paradise.
Last year he once again appeared alongside The Chase host Bradley on the ITV remake of The Darling Buds of May, The Larkins, in which he played PC Harness.
Barney inherited the acting bug as a child, attending acting school in Essex and landing his first audition, aged 12, for the Artful Dodger in a West End production of Oliver! He made his feature film debut playing a Young Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.
